“Shame to you” Wizkid washes President’s aide, Lauretta, as celebrities hit streets in protest
Nigerian singer, Wizkid has answered back to a message by Lauretta Onochie, the Special Assistant on Social Media, where she depicted him as a ‘dumb kid’.
The President’s media aide portrayed Wizkid as being ignorant, insensitive, and behaving like a child for hitting on the Buhari over SARS brutalities.
Nonetheless, Wizkid replying on Tuesday evening told Onochie to be ashamed of herself for rendering such an assertion.
In accordance with him, he has the right to demand for better governance as a father irrespective of his age.
Meanwhile, some celebrities are keen to hit the streets of Nigeria against Police’s Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS) brutality on innocent citizens.
Notable musical artists, Douglas Jack Agu, best known by his stage name Runtown and Folarin Falana, also called Falz, have ignored the position of the federal government to curtail SARS’s excessive application of force on Nigerians.
Earlier, Azeez Adeshina Fashola called off a nationwide rally against #EndSARS scheduled to hold on Tuesday early in the week before the minister of youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, and Police Force through Frank Mbah condemned the police abuse of youths’ right.
Both Ministry and commission promised to checkmate SARS unwarranted actions on youths ain making sure Young men and women are not painted as ‘Yahoo Boys’ and go about their daily business without obstruction.
Both Runtown and Falz, including many other well-meaning Nigerians, insist to protest on Thursday until SARS operatives are withdrawn from Nigerian streets and finally dissolved.
However, Police have declares to implement the SARS reform report spearheaded by vice President Yemi Osinbajo in 2018 which reduced major activities of the police special squad going by stop and search, mounting blocks, street patrol, and many others.
The force also turned down clamour by Nigerian residents to scrap the police unit in order to save dwellers from further killings which footages surface on social media.
